Mosqueing the neighborhood: Islamic supremacism destroys another suburb, Bloomington

29

Here again we see Islamic supremacists destroying a quiet, residential neighborhood. Demands for respect, tolerance and submission from the kuffar (non-Muslims) are coupled with contempt and disrespect for the kuffar. The opposition is not to the mosque per se, but to mega-structures going up on small, residential streets obliterating the quality of life and tranquility of residential living. City councils and local politicians have been co-opted, in many cases, bought and paid for, by the Islamic supremacist organizations behind these rabats. This is an Islamic pattern we see time and time again, in Sheepshead Bay, DuPage, Alexandria, Murfreesboro, and Temecula. And now, Bloomington.

Imam Waleed Idrees Al-Maneese and Hyder Aziz lead the 'Al Farooq Youth and Family Center' that is causing so much misery and mayhem in the Minneapolis suburb of Bloomington.
Apparently they have huge plans for further expansion this Islamic Center that was once a Christian school. Look at the havoc already wreaked on this neighborhood.

VIDEO here: When open, Al-Farooq Youth & Family Center (AFYFC) will be one of
the largest Islamic Community Center in the United States. Founded to
better serve the needs of a rapidly growing Muslim community in the Twin
Cities, over the next three years AFYFC plans to open a full-time and
hourly licensed Islamic Day Care Center, an Islamic Pre-School for
Toddlers, an Islamic Weekend Academy, a Fitness Center for Muslim women,
a state-of-the-art Multimedia Center, a Canteen, a full-time Islamic
Elementary School, a Community Conference Room and a Prayer Room
inshaAllah!

It's happening in Bloomington. One neighborhood activist writes me:

The
impact for me is that my home is now surrounded by constant traffic. 
As you saw the building is in the middle of the neighborhood.  The
amount of traffic allowed on R-1 property in a residential area in
Bloomington is 10 trips per average home size.  So I would expect to see
up to 280 trips and in a 3 hour time period at AFYFC the count is 600
and then the traffic returns in the evening.  The traffic has included
semi's, a flatbed truck, large industrial trucks and busses
including school busses, where drivers use empty busses to attend
prayer.  The proposed use was for a maximum of 200 people to attend
prayer in a room that was stated to hold 150.  A patron told me there
were 800.
 
They have had 6 large events where the usage of the park was
uninviting for the neighborhood, specifically Eid where my estimate was
that 5,000 people ascended upon or neighborhood.  They actually had
people tell residents they could not use the park parking lot, that it
was a private event.
 
When they first moved in the residents were told by patrons that
they owned the park, a man from the building approached park personnel
and said "you work for me" and continued with requesting a hill be mowed
and more flowers planted.
 
Ramadan was the worst.  They stated in the conditional use permit
that Ramadan would be from 9pm to 10pm and we found out that it was more
like 10:45pm to 5am.  Cars did ascend upon the place early but the
majority came around 10:45pm.  The traffic came and went through the
night, I would estimate a trip count of 800 to 1000.  The parking lots
were not designed for night usage like that as the parking lot enters
and exits in front of homes on Park Ave.  I live on Oakland and felt the
flicker through the shades.  I also heard the activity through the
night, car doors shutting, beeping, kids crying, children laughing and
chattering, men talking.  One night in particular was unbearable and I
went to see what was going on, I said to myself it is like a KOA
campground.
 
I have had reports of traffic that is too fast and reckless, one
car jumped a curb and almost hit two children on a bike path.  I saw a
man on a bike almost get hit.  My son driving on Portland almost got hit
by a patron that did not stop or slow down.  My sisters were over one
day and we heard a very large screech, and I said no one got hurt.  They
asked how I knew and I said I have learned to listen for a thumb. 
These near misses are the result of too many.  If the building had the
projected 78 cars stated in the conditional use permit then maybe 5 - 10
would drive incorrectly, when the number of vehicles increase to 300
then it would be more like 15-30 that drive incorrectly.
 
Due to the patrons of the building filling up our streets with
vehicles, the city recently sent out information about installing "no
parking" signs on our streets.  This is the cities attempt at helping
the neighborhood.  Installing "no parking" signs only diverts the parked
cars to another neighborhood, it does not address the traffic/trip
count.  Installing "no parking" signs would be inconvenient to the
residents because many of these homes only have one car garages with one
car driveways.
 
The owners of the building were supposed to sign a shared use
agreement with the city for the parking lot and the football field
before they took occupancy.  That did not happen.  Long story short the
city is not using the football field.  It is maintaining it as
previously agreed at a cost to the city but the city is not using it. 
Since the city is off the football field it does not need to share a
parking lot either.  The city had first option to purchase the field, an
outlot.  When I asked the city why they did not purchase it the mayor
responded that it did not make sense because the city gets to use it for
20 years and then an additional 10.  This area is the most dense,
diverse and low income and the football field was the highlight of this
area.  It was the best field BAA was allowed to use.  I had lunch with a
women who said most of her sons games are now West. That is too far for
many parents and too far for friends and family to watch.
 
The football field does not have a conditional use permit and yet
the owners of the building rented it to a semi-pro football team which
brought additional traffic.  The city manager's response was that the
traffic could not be more than the high school football games.  What he
did not acknowledge was that the use as proposed was already over the
280 trip count and any additional use should not be permitted.
 
Another negative impact is the late night use of the park parking
lot.  All the parks in Bloomington close at 10pm and that includes all
parking lots.  An empty parking lot is a safety factor for us in that
the residents can see into the park and call the police if we see
anything, which has helped remove gangs and keep them away.  When the
city entered into the shared use agreement it was under the premise that
the building did not operate past 10pm, the conditional use permit did
not indicate a use past 10pm, AFYFC knew the park parking lot closed at
10pm and had no expectations it would be any different for them. 
Instead of telling AFYFC they could not use the park parking lot, the
city had 2 or 3 men change the park lighting so that it would be on all
night.  So now the residents get car lights and park parking lot lights
through the night.
 
AFYFC does not keep their lights on, so the city is paying to light
the park parking lot but they choose to turn off theirs.
  They also
have a lot that is supposed to have lighting and the city manager's
response was the city can't make them comply because the city has
noncompliant lots.  That is not true, the two lots he mentioned are for
fields and in Bloomington fields/parks do not have to have lit parking
lots.
 
Four council members were suporting us and the mayor but after
the city attorney gave fear and intimidation presentation about
Ruplia we have not representation now. 
 
After I heard the city attorney's presentation about Ruplia I was
curious what the city attorney said before I had first spoken back in
May 2011 and it turns out she spoke about AFYFC in a closed meeting so I
can't read what she told the council.  I had three legal reasons why
the city needed to revisit the conditional use permit and had a signed
petition to present.  I had two council members that said they would
vote to revisit the conditional use permit and instead they acted like I
was mistaken and made it all up, I was so shocked.  In later council
meetings the council would say in so may words that I was lying.
 
The three legal reasons were the water problems were not addressed,
the conditional use permit left out three addresses and a trip count
was not calculated.
